TOK's Craigy T and radio disc jockey/law student Sanjay Smith are among over 70 Jamaican males competing for a chance to win a trip to Axe Apollo's Space Academy and eventually space.

Axe, a leader in personal men's care, is giving male fans 18 years and older the chance to be a part of the trip of a lifetime to space, and Sanjay says he opted to be a part of the challenge because, in addition to the exciting prospect of space travel, he has always has an interest in science.

"Space travel is extremely exciting to me because very few get the chance to see the world from a galactic view. The zero-gravity experience, a closer look at the universe, the moon, stars, other planets and just how much of a small speck we are in a much bigger picture," he says.

Dancehall artiste Craigy T, who is known for his interest in fitness, says space is a welcome challenge; not only would the athletic component in Florida be exciting, but also that of advancing further and winning the ultimate trip to space.

"The very thought about floating among the stars has been the dream of millions, including myself, for years. I've been talking about it since I decided to sign up. Sharing it everywhere: FB, Twitter, on the radio, TV, and so on," he says.

To participate in the innovative campaign which was launched last month, male fans can visit the Axe Apollo Space Academy's site at or

There, they will be able to create an astronaut profile while explaining why they deserve to go to space.

Following this,100 fans from across the world, including one Jamaican with the highest votes, will be selected in June to go to the Axe Apollo Space Academy in Florida in December. While in Florida the final 22 space travellers will be selected based on competitive space-simulation challenges.
